    I have the same problem except that the 3rd center top hatch brake light works. They stopped working one by one. They don't have power but fuse is ok and bulbs are fine.

Hey there JABJAW,

Check the switch on the brake pedal. You'll have to contort a bit.

  • Get a flashlight, get down under the dash.
  • The brake light switch is near the top of the brake pedal (but not on it).
  • When you press the pedal, does it fully extend?
  • Are the wires firmly attached?
  • Does the switch look damaged/corroded?
  • While you're down there, double check the fuses
If the problem persists, find a test light and get back with me. We Will get it fixed. Either way, let me know how it went.

BTW, do the turn signals work?
Mike

Why my stop lamp dont turn on when i stop


While if it was working before then there is little problems which you have to check steep by steep !
1. go check your car light bulbs & light grips on back of your car .
If Bulbs look good then.
2. check fuse in fuse box which is on driver side & on fuse box cover its written on stop lamp & you can check other fuse as well just to confirm if there is another shorting.
If all fuse are good then check .
3.Check brake pedal upper side there is one switch which have two wire out check there wire or grip if its have losing then it wont work.
if its look proper attached then .
4.This switch have threads which can be adjustable before taking any step to adjust just check when you are pressing a brake pedal there is a plastic needle working inside its come out or not ,If its come out then your brake light switch gone wrong or if its not coming then plastic needle is jammed inside & your car brake light not working.
Just to confirm if your brake switch is in good condition or in bad condition .
Okay this is final steep you have to check or confirm it switch problem .....
5. There is two wire on back of brake pedal switch or in a grip coming out , So if its in grip or just on clips, then take a wire piece & bypass or joint both wire which is coming from wire loom sid to brake pedal & check your brake lamps if its blink or on than 100% you car brake pedal switch is not working or inside its short , So replace your car brake pedal switch or if still not blink or On then there is some issue in your car wiring & you better check you car to you auto electrician......
Hopefully you will save your amount not to visit you auto electrician.
best of luck....

Brake lights don't work. Bulbs, fuses and brake light switch all okay. Center brake light works and the running lighs work.


Filaments on actual bulbs might be burned out, pull the socket out from the back of the tailights and do a visual check on the bulbs, replace if needed...

Brake lights don't light ..bulbs okay, fuses all okay,


If you bulbs and fuses are ok then you'll need to test/trace wiring with an electrical tester/multimeter from connection to bulbs back all the way to the fuse block if needed to determine where the short is to fix that connection. Electrical work can be very time consuming and very expensive if problem is not found in a short amount of time. If you choose to do this yourself I can provide with with more detailed instructions if needed just let me know

2003 Silhoutte, both lower brakes lights do not work. Bulbs or turn signal switch? Turn signals work okay. Cyclops works okay, fuses look good.


Bulbs are bad, most bulbs burn out around the same time withing a day or two and both of your brake lights may have gone bad. Try with the simple and inspect the bulb and replace if you see any discoloration to the glass on the bulb. Good luck and than you for using Fixya.

1993 Ford Escort 4-door: Back-up and license plate lights are out. All fuses checked = okay. All bulbs ohmed out/visual = okay. All other lights are functioning properly (parking, brake, turn, headlight,...


the back-up lights would probably be a bad reverse switch at that point. I'm not sure what could be causing the plate lights if its not fuses or bulbs and all the others are working. I would highly recommend checking your bulbs one more time and look to see if the filaments are smooth or pitted. if they are pitted but otherwise appear to be ok they are in fact burnt out. I have even seen bulbs n that condition ohm out ok but still not work.

Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.


These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Rear Running Lights Out


Check the 10 amp "Tail" fuse. This controls the running lamps.
Note that the rear bulbs are "dual filament" bulbs, and even though the brake lamp feature works, the running light feature in the same bulb can be bad.
